Export SAP connections from old beacon to new beacon

Jump to solution

We're migrating one of our beacons that runs SAP imports to a new server. We have about 50 active SAP connections and it'll be very difficult for us to obtain the credentials for all of them so we want a way to easily migrate these over.

We tried copying the config.xml over but we get an error message saying 'key not valid for use in specified state'

Thanks,

Peter

I expect the error you are receiving is because the credential information stored in the config.xml file is encrypted in such a way that it can only be decrypted on the computer it came from - it won't be able to be decrypted on any other computer to help keep information secure.

I can't think of any way you'll be able to avoid having to go back to get credentials and enter them in to the new beacon sorry.

Hi Peter,

Does the KB article Can SAP System Configurations be Backed up on Beacons? help you?
